Ticket #1202 (closed defect: fixed)
DBFReadStringAttribute can return garbage -- seen in QGIS and MapWindow
|Reported by:||cmichaelis@…||Owned by:||warmerdam|
It appears that DBFReadStringAttribute can sometimes return a string with garbage in it when it should return either a blank string or a string of spaces. This may be seen with the attached demonstration shapefile. Also attached is a screen shot of how ArcMap handles these values, as well as a screen capture from QGIS and from MapWindow. This could be a problem with the shapefile as well. The user who reported this bug to us originally has not explained how he generated this shapefile (using what tool or mechanism), so it could be that the shapefile itself is flawed. Thanks for your excellent work as always! --Chris
